    try this one...stick a wooden/kitchen match in the crack of a sidewalk...tape some sandpaper to your bucket tooth...light the match without breaking the stick.

    I like the last one, that machine actually had some hours and wear and tear on it.

    Yea, that's my favorite too. That machine is 11 years old and has a few thousand hours on it!

    Pretty good, but I want to see better. We use to stack tires and it wasn't easy to get a stack as high as the machine, but then came the real challenge. To make another one and add that stack to the other one. We tried to get a third one going but never even came close to getting it.

    This is coming from the mindset of a production pipeline superintendent and I'm not trying to be a smart a$$, but I'm to busy getting pipe in the ground to film my skills but now that I have my own my own business I'll try and get some stuff up.I've been watching your youtube channel for a year or so now and you look like a pretty good operator.What kind of filming and editing equipment do you use and what do you think of that E50(love that machine):salute? that's probably gonna be my next purchase as I need something to fit between my BC 329 and Link Belt 160.Oh and thanks for putting up videos like you do, gives me a chance to watch other people and how they do things

    Haha yea, it helps to work for a family business. I used to just use windows movie maker, but I have made a major upgrade to Final Cut Pro 10 to make and edit the videos. I have two cameras that i use, a Olympus Stylus Tough, and a GoPro. We love the E50. Not sure if you have seen my thread on here about it but check it out. https://www.heavyequipmentforums.com/showthread.php?19789-Bobcat-E50&highlight=
